#IWSG – To Patreon or Not Patreon

IWSG badge

Welcome to another edition of Internet Writer’s Support Group. A time honoured tradition for my site where I reveal my thoughts and feelings as a writer. Sometimes those thoughts are good, other times, not so good. Today, I will discuss my new Patreon account. What is it, why am I doing it, and how this will affect me as a writer.

Countdown to NaNo — Introduction

Participant-2014-Twitter-ProfileNovember 1st is soon upon us, and it is time for NaNoWriMo. Already been a year… what a year it has been. I published one book, which has great reviews. I have met a great number of people who have given me fantastic support. I rubbed elbow with authors, and I now have a voice within the community. A small one, but it is there.

It was last years NaNo that convinced me to become an author once more. I didn’t just complete it, I annihilated it. 50,000 words in 14 days. Will I do it again? I don’t know. I know I’ll get 50,000 words. Maybe in 40 days, maybe in 10 days.

Kickstarter Update — New Stretch Goal: $4000

daygar legacy coming soonI have a brand new stretch goal. For those who don’t know, when it comes to Kickstarter, a Stretch Goal is when you reach a certain amount of money, the person doing the Kickstarter offers something. Sometimes it is a feature in their product or they offer something that can be purchased.

I have designated already what my Stretch Goals will be, starting with when I get my $3000 goal to by some miracle getting $25,000. Some of my goals is a gift to the those who donate to get extra features, and other stretch goals is how that amount of funding will help me. Today, I report on what special thing my supporters get when I reach the $4000 goal.

IWSG – Kickstarter

IWSG badgeI’ve been neglecting this the last few months and I apologize. I’ve been very busy with my Kickstarter campaign. I am doing everything I can for that to be successful, but out of 15 days since my Kickstarter started, I have $139. Assuming I need $50 a day in order to meet my goal, I am $561 behind.

I am really scared I won’t make my goal. I hate it because I am working so hard on it, and I felt that the amount was so small. Perhaps I should have set it for releasing 1 book rather than 5, but even then, I wouldn’t even be close.

This is very important to me and all I want is the chance to be an author and earning income so I can try to have a somewhat normal life. I will still try to release books if I fail and I’ve made good connections with other writers and bloggers. I am happy for the experience of it, and I continue to work hard because I have a little bit of hope that some miracle will come around and give me a chance for my dream.

Please check out my Kickstarter and share it on your favorite social media site.

Interview – David Lee Summers

DLS-Author-Photo-pngI had the privilege to interview David Lee Summers. I met him at Phoenix Comicon and asked for his help in promoting my Kickstarter and since then have emailed each other several times. He is one of many writers I respect and look up to, hoping to one day match his level of success.

David has broke the mold of traditional writers by writing outside his genre and being quite successful at it. He is known for his Vampire tales and is currently doing a Steampunk western-era story. Join me in welcoming David and hearing the great advice he has to offer.

Daygar Legacy – Chapter 1 Part 1

daygar legacy coming soonAt long last, the first part of Chapter 1 is available for view. This has been 4 years in the making. The purpose of this is to show those who support my Kickstarter campaign what they are investing in. Admittedly, it is with mistakes. It is only a first draft and could use the hand of a professional. However, I am very proud of how it came together and this is just but a taste of what the rest of the novel will be like.

The first book is called Templar Five. This book explores what that means and will set the tone for the rest of the series. A lot happens in this short text. This is to support my Kickstarter campaign so everyone can see what they are investing in.
